Opening Excel Workbooks

I'm running into an issue where if I click on an Excel 
file through My Documents, it doesn't automatically bring 
it up.

I get the toolbar but the actual spreadsheet doesn't 
appear on the screen.  I have to click on the taskbar to 
get it to pop up.

If I already have Excel active and I open a file through 
Excel, this doesn't happen.

Any ideas?

Can I only allow printing to pdf in Excel?
I have created a template in Excel which has been set up so that the layout is perfect when printing to pdf (which is how the document will mostly be used) but the layout changes if printing direct to our printer.

GUID/Outlook format link giving error "Unable to open the seleted folder or item"

The same happens if I send the Outlook type link. However, if I ask the user to go to the folder and find the appropriate posting, then the form opens and after that the link works, too. Is this due to some Exchange server setting? My clients are not the type that tolerate opening the form the long way, they want a one click solution. Please help, this is driving my team crazy.

Excel 2003 Print Issue

The report is arranged vertically in the worksheet, so the pages are 'stacked' on top of each other.

Editable Excel Spreadsheet Online?

I would like the users to be able to save the copy on the server. What would be involved in something like this?
